Coplan FX 18 casse tout (1965) -- Riccardo Freda's first of two Francis Coplan spy films (his second being Coplan ouvre le feu à Mexico) Coplan FX 18 casse tout stars Richard Wyler in one of the 5 Coplan films based on Paul Kenny's espionage novels (this particular film is based on Stoppez Coplan).
This flamboyant entry to our fantastic project has FX-18 (Richard Wyler) hurtling back and forth between Paris and Istanbul to prevent an Arab nuclear strike on Israel. Teamed with a bumbling Israeli operative (stuntman Gil Delamare), FX-18 must deal with exploding airplanes, nuclear terrorists, scientists in spiked coffins, murdered strippers, and sadistic torture-killings, all while trying to avoid World War III. Freda loads the film with campy sexual sight-gags and wonderfully silly setpieces such as the film's finale, in which Coplan is strapped inside a nuclear warhead to be launched to a certain doom. Delamare stages some impressive stunts, and although the supporting cast is rather weak, Wyler, Delamare, and siren Jany Clair make the film enjoyable for genre devotees. This film has several alternate titles, including: The Exterminators, FX-18, Superspy, Coplan FX-18, and Coplan Casse Tout.
